I think I'm being fair when I say -no matter what-at 3 p.m. on Sunday afternoon you should be able to plate a table, and get all the orders on the table within a reasonable amount of time. No it didn't happen. The food was okay, the guacamole like dip was good, the chips were good but I still think... More

Visited for first time on 2014-08-17 at 1100. Have enjoyed other locations. Tortillas were terrible being oily and undercooked. Refried beans with fajitas were burned. Had to ask server multiple times for items ordered. Area was so crowded that waiter had to pass plates the length of the table. Room was noisy.

I've been visiting Mamacita's for about 20 years, starting with the Kerrville location. The San Marcos location is always a great place to visit. The food is great and the atmosphere is wonderful. I think the manager has been the same one since they opened in San Marcos. The wait staff is always first rate.

The salsa and green dip sauce were excellent. Queso was very good. The tacos and enchiladas were also tasty. The atmosphere was the best. The... More

Momacitas has awesome magaritas and seafood and Mexican food and their dessert is a must try. We ordered the fish Vera Cruz and queso flameado. They both were teriffic. Try the Midori margaritas by the pitcher. Will go back asap.

It was good, nothing bad about it. Who doesn't love Mamacita's. It's just that for me it has become not so unique and comparable to the same old same old of Olive Garden etc...

their food is pretty average nothing outstanding, it doesn't take long to get seated and have your food in front of you. The service is very good usually pretty friendly. Not bad for the price.
